Hi all– well, last week around here the temperature was in the high 90’s! Real summer easing into September. And I had the remnants of a watermelon from when our melon eating grand-girls were here. So it seemed like the right idea to, but to whirl up this fresh cold drink.
I got the recipe from one of the most beautiful blogs I read every week. Serena in Italy is an artist with her food photography and she posted this yummy recipe. You can find her at http://foodfulife.com . I think you’ll love her work.
STRAWBERY WATERMELON SLUSHIE
4 cups watermelon, cut in small chunks
3 cups strawberries, stems removed and cut in half
2 or 3 mint leaves
Cut up the watermelon and pop it into the freezer for 3 to 4 hours.
When the watermelon is frozen, then drop the strawberries, frozen watermelon and mint leaves into a blender and whirr it into a bright frozen slushie. Makes two servings.
Pour it into a glass and drink it right on the spot! So fresh and bright!

love watermelon slushies – I also like them as a grown up drink with some ice cold vodka – does that make me a bad person :)?
vodka? next time I get a watermelon in the house, I’m giving that try! and bad person? You send out so much beauty and cheer– I’m imagining you couldn’t possibly be a “bad person” dear Poli!
Glad to provide some inspiration – it is really very nice with some vodka on a hot evening – I haven’t had one for years sadly come to think of it and now the summer is over, so you shall have to enjoy one for me. Thank you for your warmhearted comment – was a grand thing to read after a tough day in the mines (well not really but you know what I mean) – I am pretty certain that everyone needs a Rhonda in their life (or failing that a thankful heart :)) – have a beautiful day
We are still very hot here in NYC this looks so good.
We’re hot here too Suzanne– waiting for a little sweater, apple dessert baking weather around here– it’ll come, I know.
Omg this looks so refreshing…but it’s been raining a lot over here and it’s too bad I don’t have the mood fr a slushie:(
Hi Lina– I now your recipes come from all over, but I can’t tell where you live from your blog– raining? Is it Seattle? England?
